Impaired Driving Charges
With an impaired driving charge, being impaired means a driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle is altered due to the consumption of alcohol or drugs. These charges all fall under “Impaired Driving” and are issued under Criminal Code sections 253 to 259. These types of charges include and are also known as:
- Drinking Under the Influence (DUI)
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Impaired Driving
- Driving Over 0.08%
- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving
- High driving
- Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample
In court, the prosecution’s job is to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by drugs or alcohol. This is why having an experienced lawyer on your side like Jerry Steele is essential, as he understands that these charges are difficult to prove, and can highlight where the prosecutor may have insufficient evidence. There may also be the possibility for your charge to be negotiated to a lesser offence, or there may be a defence that will cause your charges to be dismissed. Or, if you do have to go to trial, you can be confident knowing that you have an experienced and highly successful trial lawyer on your side.
